This sale excludes some travel dates, including over Thanksgiving (Nov. 20-29) and travel on Fridays and Sundays. Fares are subject to limited availability, meaning they may not be available on all days or all flights. Sale fares do not include taxes and fees.

“The launch of our 2021 ‘Monster Sale’ supports the next phase of our direct distribution strategy, which focuses on driving more direct bookings among leisure travelers looking to reconnect with family, friends and the places they love,” Dave Clark, the vice president of sales and revenue management at JetBlue, said in a statement.

The best way to take advantage of these low fares is by booking through JetBlue directly rather than through a third party. The airline promises one-way flights as low as $31 to and from 31 routes, including:

  • Departing from Atlanta (ATL); Austin, Texas (AUS); Chicago (ORD); Cleveland (CLE); Washington, D.C. (DCA); Philadelphia (PHL); Nashville (BNA); and New Orleans (MSY) to Fort Lauderdale (FLL).
  • Departing from Boston (BOS) to Washington, D.C. (DCA), Miami (MIA), New York City (JFK), Philadelphia (PHL) and San Antonio (SAT).
  • Departing from New York (JFK) to Atlanta (ATL), Miami (MIA), Nashville (BNA) and San Antonio (SAT).
  • Departing from New York (LGA) to Denver (DEN) and Jacksonville, Florida (JAX).
  • Departing from Los Angeles (LAX) to Las Vegas (LAS) and San Francisco (SFO).

Remember that the sale fares are applicable in either direction, so the same fare price would be listed for ATL to FLL and FLL to ATL, for example.

You’ll note that sale fares are for the lowest class available, either Blue Basic or Blue. Blue Basic only includes one personal item that can fit under the seat in front of you (excluding for Mosaic members) and neither include checked baggage, so factor in an additional $35 for your first bag and $45 for your second should you choose to check bags. Change and cancel fees apply to Basic fares as of Nov. 1, as outlined below.
